My absolute FAVORITE part of teaching is small group time. I treasure the uninterrupted time with my students and LOVE hearing them discuss a text with one another. I especially love small group time because it allows me to step back and gives all my students (the shy AND the outgoing ones) a time to SHINE.
This free packet is a collection of resources to help you have successful, thought-provoking, and meaningful small group discussions (also known as close talks) in your classroom! Enjoy.
